      Abydos, Sixth Dynasty: A Provincial Powerhouse in Late Old Kingdom

      by Kei Yamamoto, SSEA national Vice-president and PhD candidate, Toronto
      University.

      Abydos was one of the most important cities throughout the ancient history
      of Egypt. After a brief introduction to this famous archaeological site,
      the lecture focuses on late Old Kingdom when Abydos enjoyed one of its
      "golden ages". How did Abydos come into such prominence in the 6th Dynasty?
      Who were the key players? The lecture highlights the lives and careers of
      some of the most remarkable people from this influential provincial city,
      including Vizier Weni the Elder and Princess Ankhesenpepy II, and elucidates
      their close relationship with the royal family based in Memphis.
